Governor Gregoire and Congressman McDermott Join Novo Nordisk at Opening Event for Type 1 Diabetes Research Center in Seattle
Date:6/13/2012

oration and the talented biotech researchers who work here.

"The diabetes R&D center is a welcome addition to the City of Seattle. The opening of this facility will represent 20 new jobs for our scientific community and an opportunity to showcase Seattle's biotech hub," remarked Rep. McDermott.

The opening of this center will re-focus efforts on type 1 diabetes, a condition that has lacked major scientific progress in recent years. In the past decade, type 2 diabetes has been the main focus among diabetes researchers and pharmaceutical companies because of the dramatic rise in the number of people living with the disease. Type 1 diabetes is a different disease that requires life-saving treatment with insulin.

"This center will provide opportunities to accelerate our researchers' best ideas and make real progress in bringing treatment advances to people with type 1 diabetes," said Matthias von Herrath, MD, a world-renowned researcher in auto-immune diseases and head of the new Novo Nordisk diabetes research center. "We are driven by the company's mandate to find a cure for type 1 diabetes – something that is unique for the pharmaceutical industry today."

The new center, which will be fully operational this summer, is located on the same premises as the Novo Nordisk Inflammation Research Center in order to foster natural research synergies between the two sites.
